me {85/365}

I’m getting better at this self portrait thing. I spent a bit of time last night looking through flickr at what kind of settings others were using. More often than not, they were all standard auto.

So that’s what I did.


Processed with (amongst other things) Johhna’s Tea Party available at CoffeeShop.  Love the softness of this action.  Perfect for hiding wrinkles and my normally crap complexion.

I also set a focal point this time, instead of winging it like I was doing.  It totally helped and I don’t know why I didn’t do it before.  All I used was my coffee mug.  Worked like a charm, and easy to move out of the way quickly.

Now, maybe next time I’ll manage to get my whole head in there.


You can find my 365 project on flickr or check out the flickr group for Shutter Sisters.

    Awesome pic!

    I still haven’t figured out how to use stuff from that site. It never shows up in my filters. Brushes I have down but filters, nope.

      They’re not filters, they’re actions.
      There are tons of tutorials on her site too. Check it out when you have some time.
